And Real Madrid and Liverpool make up the top five big spenders at £312m and £310m respectively. The Anfield club’s pay out on staff rose 17.5 per cent from the previous year to lift them into the top five above Chelsea, Juventus, Paris Saint-Germain and Bayern Munich. United’s main earner for the period was Chilean flop Alexis Sanchez who was raking in an eye-watering £505,000-a-week.Advertisement Loading… Read Also: Coronavirus: EPL clubs to lose over £100m monthly if outbreak forces fan ban Barcelona sit top of the list thanks in no small part to their weekly weigh out of £1.525m just on Lionel Messi (£900k) and Luis Suarez (£625k). Further down the list, Bundesliga champs Bayern weighed out £292m on players and staff while Chelsea, Juve and Arsenal were not far behind with figures of £285m, £281m and £230m. PSG’s outlay is only available for 2017/18 but the £290m recorded then still ranks them as Europe’s seventh biggest spenders on wages. FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail分享 Manchester United’s staggering wage bill was the Premier League’s highest for 2018/19. The Red Devils paid out a whopping £332million in salaries for the period but that is still more than £100m less than LaLiga giants Barcelona. David De Gea on £375k-a-week, Paul Pogba on £290k-a-week and Anthony Martial – whose wages rose to £200k-a-week in January 2019 – are three of United’s other highest earners.
Taaffe said: “I’m delighted for the horse as he had a race at Cheltenham and it’s always a worry running three weeks later. “He was the youngest of these and you’d be hoping he’d run a stout race and while the track wouldn’t suit him, he travelled and jumped today. “It’s one of those races that if you ran it tomorrow you’d get three different results but little apples will do us at the moment! He’ll probably run in a two-and-a-half-mile handicap chase at Punchestown next.” Those who took the 8-11 about Nickname Exit in the Goatenbridge Maiden Hurdle were made to sweat a bit but he eventually prevailed with a little bit up his sleeve. Ruby Walsh had to roust the odds-on favourite along some way from home, but he knuckled down well enough to hit the front at the second-last and kept going to cross the line three and three-quarter lengths ahead of Master Appeal. Walsh said: “He jumped very well and that made the difference.” Hitting the deck in a point-to-point was hardly the ideal preparation, but Knockrea bounced back just 11 days later to claim the spoils in the Ardfinnan Maiden Hurdle. Adrian Heskin produced the 9-2 chance to challenge Tongie at the last and he found more on the run to the line to prevail by two and a quarter lengths. Gold Bullet confirmed himself a chaser of some promise when coming out on top in Clonmel’s Suir Valley Chase. The step out of maiden company saw Jo Go in a better light in the Holy Thursday Handicap Hurdle. Cathy O’Leary’s mare was allowed to go off at 20-1 thanks to three uninspiring performances under Rules, but she relished the rise to three miles and scored by a couple of lengths from Binowagh Bay. Mallards In Flight (11-2) failed to get round when pitched into Grade Two company, but the Happy Easter To All Our Patrons Handicap Chase was more to her liking and Paul Carberry drove her to a length-and-a-half success. The Tom Taaffe-trained seven-year-old was fancied for the Kim Muir at Cheltenham but could only finish in mid-division. However, he seemed to relish this smaller field and after challenging the front-running Baily Green at the second-last, where big danger You Must Know Me fell, he stuck to his task to triumph by two and a half lengths.

Last October, Global Awareness and the Departure of the Great Blue Herons were put up.The theme for the new set of sculptures will look to commemorate industries that helped build up the region, including fishing, hunting, lumbering, concrete technology, tourism, healthcare, and education. Five limestone pillars will be raised, each acting as a canvas projecting an image or piece of art that honors the industry. A sixth pillar will be put up at Washington Park along the Thunder Bay River. The pillars of limestone will be 8 to 10 feet tall. The project is estimated to cost $60,000. For Sculpture Committee Leader Tim Kuehnlein, he’s looking for local artists or artists who hail from Michigan to lay their vision out. The project is expected to be complete by October.AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitterShare to MoreAddThisContinue ReadingPrevious Lakewood Dr. home set ablazeNext United Way of Northeast Michigan Accepting Applications for 2019 Grant Request

Share Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest The warm winter weather has many concerned that ticks will be early and plentiful this spring. Those working outdoors need to be on the lookout.Aside from just providing a serious case of the heebie-jeebies, ticks are a real, and growing threat to human and animal health because they carry diseases. According to the Ohio Department of Natural Resources, blacklegged ticks are active throughout the year in Ohio with the adults active in the spring, fall and winter. The nymphs are active in the spring and summer and the larvae are active in late summer. The onset of human Lyme disease cases occurs all year in Ohio, but incidents peak in summer following the emergence of the nymphs.Lyme disease is caused by the bacterium Borrelia burgdorferi and is transmitted to humans through the bite of infected blacklegged ticks, according to the Ohio Department of Health. Typical symptoms include fever, headache, fatigue and a characteristic skin rash called erythema migrans — the “bull’s-eye” rash. Lyme disease occurs primarily in the Northeastern and upper Midwestern United States with Ohio located in between. Ohio has reported fairly low occurrence of Lyme disease in the past, but since 2010 blacklegged tick populations in Ohio have increased dramatically and their range continues to expand, particularly in the forest habitats. Increased cases of Lyme disease have followed.Greene County Christmas tree grower Matt Mongin had an awful run-in with Lyme disease that he hopes to help others avoid.Matt Mongin had a nasty run in with Lyme disease.“After 30 years in the Christmas tree business, in 2015 I encountered Lyme disease. I am not sure when I got it, but in the fall just before we opened our farm after Thanksgiving I got seriously sick. My wife took me to the emergency room and within 24 hours I lost consciousness,” Mongin said. “The physicians in the ICU weren’t sure if I would live. They gave me a cocktail of antibiotics that they thought might help and it worked. Within three or four days I regained consciousness and I was better but I was in the hospital for 13 days. I lost my entire 2015 sales season. It took another 4.5 months of daily injections of antibiotics to cure the Lyme disease.”The Center for Disease Control reports 30,000 new cases of Lyme disease each year around the country, but experts believe that most cases are never reported. There were 112 Ohio confirmed Lyme disease cases in 2015 with 42 more probable cases, up from 58 in 2005.“Lyme disease specialists around the country say that Lyme disease is hugely under reported and their current estimate is 300,000 new cases each year,” Mongin said.The best protection from tick bites is to simply avoid areas where they are present during the months when the nymphs are most active from March through August. Of course, many in agriculture do not have that option.“The next best thing to do is to understand the life cycle of the tick. They have a complex life cycle with four phases from eggs to larvae to nymph to adult. At each phase they need a blood meal from a warm-blooded mammal,” he said. “Typically the smallest ticks have their blood meal from a mouse or other small rodent. The larger ticks look for bigger mammals like humans.”Because the nymphs require larger animals for a food source, they are highly dependent on deer in Ohio to move and find mates. Fencing to prevent deer can be effective in avoiding ticks and Lyme disease in commonly used outdoor areas. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention suggests tips to create tick-safe zones for children, family members and employees to make areas less attractive to ticks through landscaping. These include:• Clear tall grasses and brush around homes and at the edge of lawns.Place a three-foot wide barrier of wood chips or gravel between lawns and wooded areas and around patios and play equipment. This will restrict tick migration into recreational areas.Mow the lawn frequently and keep leaves raked.Stack wood neatly and in a dry area to discourage rodents that ticks feed on.Keep playground equipment, decks, and patios away from yard edges and trees and place them in a sunny location, if possible.Remove any old furniture, mattresses, or trash from the yard that may give ticks a place to hide.Mongin also stressed the importance of dressing appropriately.“When you are out in the woods you need to dress to prevent them from having access to your skin. They are out there and you want long pants and long shirts when you are outdoors near the woods or trees where ticks are,” he said. “Wear long pants, socks and long sleeved shirts. Tuck your pants into your socks or boots and secure them with a cord, rubber band or Velcro tie. Then shower as soon as you go indoors and look for ticks on your skin and in your hair. Wash and dry your clothing on high heat as soon as you can. Anti-tick sprays with Deet can also be helpful.”Ticks are flightless and do not jump. They crawl up tall grass, shrubs and bushes and wait for warm-blooded mammals to pass by. Then they grab onto fur or clothing and then crawl to areas of soft skin. Those who do find a tick on their skin need to remove it quickly.“Ideally you will see that tick and remove it quickly and if you do you will probably not get the disease. Ticks should be removed with a set of fine tweezers. Pull the tick’s head out of the skin and wash well with alcohol or soap and water. Heat or matches are not helpful. Then save the tick and show it to your doctor,” Mongin said. “You can take it in a plastic bag to your physician and they will advise you what to do next. Often they will give you an oral antibiotic to take for a couple of weeks and that will be the end of it. The bigger problem is if you have a tick bite and don’t know it.”Their bites do not cause itching so ticks can be hard to find. If it is not found and removed, a tick will feed and leave after a day or two.“The tick really needs to be embedded in your skin for a couple of days for you to get the disease. You may get a bulls-eye rash where the tick bit you and it is very distinctive. If you don’t get the rash but you’ve been bitten, you could get persistent Lyme disease that has flu-like systems with fever, headaches, joint pain, and chills,” Mongin said. “You need to talk to your medical professional and let them know that you have been in a position where you could have been exposed to ticks. Then they can do a blood test and get you the antibiotics you need to cure the disease. You probably will never know you have Lyme disease until you see a definitive rash or you have a blood test that shows you have antibodies to the bacteria that causes Lyme disease.”Antibiotics that are prescribed for Lyme disease include Amoxicillin, Tetracycline, Cefuroxime and Doxycycline. Left untreated, Lyme disease can be debilitating and challenging to cure.In addition to Lyme disease, the blacklegged tick is also the principal vector of human granulocytic anaplasmosis and babesiosis. The ticks may be co-infected with several disease agents, and some ticks may simultaneously infect a host with two or more of these diseases, according to Ohio State University Extension. Two other tick species in Ohio are medically important because they are disease vectors — the American dog tick and the lone star tick. All tick species are vectors of the heebie-jeebies.
Massive Non-Desk Workforce is an Opportunity fo… 3 Areas of Your Business that Need Tech Now Related Posts Tags:#enterprise#Trends klint finley IT + Project Management: A Love Affair Yakov Fain, author of several books on Java, agrees. “Unfortunately, people who state that Java’s dead are not the people who use the latest Java technologies day in and day out,” Fain writes.O’Grady believes that Java use is declingng not because it is dying, but because there are so many specific use tools available now. O’Grady has written about this explosion of growth of specialized tools before. Although NoSQL databases provide an alternative to relational databases, it doesn’t mean that relational databases will go away. Likewise, Node.js provides a specialized alternative to Apache, but won’t kill Apache. So it goes with Java. From Clojure to Ruby to Node.js, there are many alternatives to Java. But Interest in Java is still high. O’Grady presents various data to make the case, including this analsysis of the comments on Hacker News: RedMonk’s Stephen O’Grady challenges the conventional wisdom that Java is dying – a position typified by recent comments from Forrester analysts. O’Grady acknowledges that although Java has peaked in terms of popularity, it is hardly the dead end that Forrester claims it is.O’Grady bases his claims on various data collected by RedMonk. RedMonk’s research is focused on developers, instead of enterprise “decision makers.” “We advantage this audience simply because we believe that bottom up adoption is more predictive of technology direction than top down procurement, but reasonable minds may obviously disagree,” O’Grady writes.This diagram illustrates the thinking behind RedMonk’s focus on developers: O’Grady also notes how important Java is to platforms like Hadoop, HBase and Cassandra. “Even as the rapid expansion of the Hadoop ecosystem permits the usage of more accessible languages like Python (Dumbo) and Ruby (Wukong), Java is the foundation upon which the entire edifice rests.” One might also mention Scala’s use of the JVM in this context, and the use of Java on Android devices.What we’re witnessing is not the death of Java, but its transformation. It’s moving from being just a general use platform that dominated the enterprise to being the guts of many disparate technologies for various special applications.
